But then, as you noticed and tried not to notice you were noticing, he was snippy to the waitstaff and left an underwhelming tip. He might have made charming conversation and looked meaningfully into your eyes, but if this relationship progresses, sister, someday you're going to be the one bringing him a plate of spaghetti and getting the stink eye.
Yes, you can spin this into a playful little debate about whether tips ought to be performance-based, and maybe it will be amusing in a Seinfeld-y way.
There's a lot of pressure associated with texting a new match — something as simple as "LOL" may be the reason you never hear from him again.

The geo-location-based app is described as “the mop-up crew for all the other dating sites and apps by giving the dater an OK to leave and find someone that’s potentially a better match.” And while being someone’s Plan B isn’t necessarily the best way to begin a relationship, this is the 21st century, and let’s be honest — anything goes.
“With modern technology’s capabilities, the dating industry has a responsibility to help people make the best use of their time, money, and energy — things that all get wasted while on a bad date,” said Jennifer Kelton, the founder and CEO of Bod.
With National Grammar Day on Friday (and prime dating weather just around the corner), we've got these questions on our mind — as do the folks over at online dating site Zoosk, apparently.
We may have increased our dating pools with apps like Tinder, Bumble, and Hinge, but there seems to be a direct correlation between the number of available singles and the likelihood of going on a very, bad date.
But now, rather than faking a phone call and trying to figure out if the best excuse for a quick exit is a pet emergency or a roommate disaster, you can check out another app for a Plan B. The app promises “a redesigned approach to dating, one that returns control of their bad date night by introducing new matches in real-time, and without all the time sucking of texting and emailing.” Because, of course, the only thing you’ll want to do to escape your current bad date is go on a new date (and just hope for the best).
